The LeRoi Community Foundation administers endowment funds across the Greater Trail region. “Unrestricted Funds” support projects in any of our Fields of Interest (Arts and Culture/Education/ Environment/Health and Welfare/Sports and Recreation).   “Restricted Funds” are limited to a field of interest, one of the communities, or a specific organization. Anyone can donate to a restricted or unrestricted “open” fund. “Closed” funds receive contributions only from the fund holder.

At the end of December 2016, LCF endowed funds totalled approximately $830,000.
